Palliative Care, Hospice and Relevant Laws (David C Leven, JD, Executive Director Emeritus and Senior Consultant, End of Life Choices New York).
Surveys show that about 70% of the public does not know what palliative care is but, when informed about it, 92% said they would be likely to consider it for a loved one who has a serious illness. Mr. Leven will not only define palliative care but also provide important information on issues such as when it should be provided, barriers to its provision, how it differs from hospice, and elements of the Palliative Care Access Act and the Palliative Care Information Act.
